Public Comment: Welcomed new Planning Commission member Nancy Shaver and verified she was sworn in. Discussed blight, cost of land divisions, and zoning in Shay Lake.

Zoning Administrator: 1 dwelling, 1 pole barn, and 4 splits.

New Business: none

Ongoing Business: Need a zoning map to be located at the township hall. Looking into making a new map with color coding to identify the different zoning areas. Also a digital copy to have for the township. Wetlands require 10 acres to build on. Exotic animals- MTA got back with Travis and there is no zoning in Michigan and nothing that can be done. That is what the Animal Control/Sheriff is for. As for permits they may be needed but it is very rare. Somebody with exotic animals could use them for meat and that would be considered farming/Right to Farm Act.
